Hyundai Ioniq 5 officially launched in India

The 45 EV concept car from a few years ago served as the inspiration for the Hyundai Ioniq 5, which differs significantly from the Korean automaker’s other current offerings in India. The Ioniq 5 has a retro-futuristic style that includes all-LED headlamps and LED tail lamps that have a pixelated appearance.

Sharp edges, steeply sloped windscreens, and flat surfaces give the Ioniq 5 an SUV-like appearance. The Ioniq 5’s 20-inch aero-optimized alloy wheels have a turbine-like design as an extra design element. The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is now available in Optic White, Gravity Gold Matte, and Midnight Black Pearl for the Indian market.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5’s cabin places a strong emphasis on minimalism and sustainability. Towards that aim, it incorporates eco-friendly faux leather and fabrics created from recyclable plastic. The Ioniq 5 from Hyundai features bio-paint for the switches, steering wheel, and door pads. It also offers standard new-generation EV features including a flat floor, a movable center console, and flexible seats.

Dual 12.3-inch full-TFT screens, one for the instrument console and touchscreen infotainment system and the other for the head-up display with augmented reality features, give the Ioniq 5’s cabin a futuristic appearance. A complete ADAS system and a vehicle-to-load feature are also included. It allows for the charging of external electrical equipment with a 3.6 kW power output.

The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 has been introduced with a single engine option for the Indian automobile market, which has a single motor layout giving it a rear-wheel drive configuration. A 72.6 kWh lithium-ion battery is connected to the electric motor, which generates 217 bhp of power and 350 Nm of torque. This battery provides the Ioniq 5 a claimed range of 631 kilometers on a single charge and is capable of supporting 800V fast charging, with which it can charge from 10-80% in 18 minutes.

With these rates, the new Hyundai Ioniq 5, which shares its e-GMP platform with the Kia EV6, is now available as a more cost-effective substitute. Hyundai chose the more cost-effective CKD approach for the Ioniq 5, in contrast to the Kia EV6, which is accessible in India via the CBU route. The Ioniq 5 will have to compete against the EV6 as well as the Volvo XC40 Recharge.
